Default Re: Ms. Marvel in the works? - Part 1

They were well received by fans, definitely, no one else, afaik. They flowed out of the tone and self importance, so there couldn't be any separate criticism of the costumes. Silk Spectre (both of them) was a character entirely defined and valued by sex, so there's no reason to criticize her symbolizing herself with an advertisement for sex. It would be weird if she didn't. So you can't criticize the costume for telling the story, you just criticize the story as depressing.

Now what some are talking about, a costume that has nothing to do with the story, that would definitely garner separate criticism. That's why I say Watchmen is a bad template, because you don't want to pay the price they paid to earn that costume.
